    Best for Small Spaces: Keurig K-Mini Plus Coffee Maker

    When you have no space to spare, you’ll appreciate this mini Keurig that’s just about as wide as a coffee mug. It still has features you’ll love, like the ability to brew between 6 and 12 ounces of coffee or choose a stronger brew. This option saves space with a small, removable reservoir that holds just enough for one cup of coffee.

    Even with the small footprint, Keurig came up with a smart way to provide you with easy K-cup storage. When the machine isn't in use, you can slide a storage container right where your mug would usually sit to store up to nine K-cups at a time. The machine turns off 90 seconds after it's finished brewing to save power, but it heats up quickly when you're ready for another cup.

    The drip tray is removable, so you can fill a travel mug or taller cup of coffee easily. The water reservoir is removable and holds 90 ounces, so you can make up to 18 cups of coffee before it needs a refill.

    Best for Carafe Brewing: Keurig K250 Coffee Maker

    Sometimes a mug—even a big mug—just isn’t enough, so this Keurig lets you use K-Carafe pods to brew a whole carafe of coffee all at once. If you just want one cup, you can use K-Cups to brew 4, 6, 8, or 10-ounce cups or K-Mug pods for 12-16 ounce size. For a full carafe, use K-Carafe pods to brew 22 to 30-ounce carafes. It uses a touch screen to control all of your size options and has a removable 40-ounce water reservoir.

    The machine comes with four K-Cup pods, a water filter handle, two water filters, and a bottle of descaling solution to keep your machine spotless. It does not include a carafe, so you’ll need to use your own or buy one separately. This model is available in a variety of fun colors, like turquoise, peacock blue, and, of course, classic black.
